Evil Banana!!!

14 Dec

Okay, this week I’ve tried new foods.  I’ve tried Salmon, mostly, and some beef.  No problem there.  My stomach can handle those things, as well as nuts, which it seems a lot of Crohn’s people cannot handle.  Me?  Nah…cinch!

But today, I was running out of food, and said, “ah, what harm could a banana be?”  I ate a 1/4 of one.  READ THAT:  only a 1/4 of a stinkin’ banana!!!  Should be okay, right?  I’ve been able to eat fruit so far.  But NO!!!!!!

Within one hour I was having gas pains.  Yes, it could have been because of the constant state of constipation (sorry to be graphic, but I feel honesty is best in this blog!), but it was just too coincidental.  The gas pains lasted probably 2 hours, cycling through every 10-15 minutes.  I eventually got to the store and got some Valerium Root to de-stress, and was able to distract my brain, which helped.  But this pain was more intense than I’ve had in a long time.

Still….this is not half as bad as a lot of people who have Crohn’s, so I should be thankful.

I just can’t believe that a stinkin’ banana did this to me!!!!

Can I say ARRRRGGGGGGGGGG now?????
